“To live is Christ” reminds us of who we really are. We are super heroes. Filled with the power of the cross. Filled with the love of Christ.
“To live is Christ” means you have already won. So stand. Stand and look out over your victory in Jesus. Stand in God’s armor knowing that his promises are true and his love for you is never failing. You can live in victory today. Stop fighting for it and stand upon it instead.
“To live is Christ” is not the end of morality. It’s the beginning. The indwelling life of Christ has given us the knowledge of good and evil through the shared life of Christ.
“To live is Christ” allows us to take a deeply honest look at our own wretchedness as law keepers and then place our hope in the one who will deliver us from the body of death.
The Christian life is not about the pride filled journey of getting better and better. It is about the never ending need for grace.
“To live is Christ” offers us the power of true change. The power of the Stronger Man, Jesus Christ, making his home in our hearts, transforming us by his true love and real grace. Change that comes from a pure heart of dependence, rather than from demonic self-righteous pride.
